Item description for Pontius Pilate in History and Interpretation (Society for New Testament Studies Monograph Series) by Helen K. Bond...

Overview
This study reconstructs the life of Pontius Pilate, the Roman governor responsible for the execution of Jesus. The first section provides the historical and archaeological background. The following chapters look at six first-century authors: Philo, Josephus and the four gospel writers. Each chapter asks how Pilate is being used as a literary character in each work, why each author describes Pilate in a different way, and what this tells us about the relationship between each author and the Roman state.

Publishers Description
This study reconstructs the historical Pontius Pilate, who is used as a literary character in the works of six 1st-century authors: Philo, Josephus and the four evangelists. The first chapter provides an introduction to the history and formation of the imperial Roman province of Judaea. The following two chapters examine the references to Pilate in Philo and Josephus, looking at each author's biases before going on to assess the historicity of their accounts. The next four chapters look at the portrayal of Pilate in each gospel, asking how a first century reader would have interpreted his actions. Each chapter asks what this portrayal shows about the author's attitude towards the Roman state, and what kind of community found this useful. The conclusion distinguishes between the historical Pilate and the different Pilates of interpretation preserved in our first century literary sources.

Reviews - What do customers think about Pontius Pilate in History and Interpretation (Society for New Testament Studies Monograph Series)?

Dispelling the Cliched Viewpoints  Jun 26, 2007
This is a very refreshing and compelling study, trenchantly argued and comprehensively researched. Do not believe what the History Channel and other media outlets propound; read and assimilate the facts.
 
A Powerful Piece on Pilate  Oct 5, 2001
At last, a well argued, clear, thoughful and incisive academic book on Pilate. Bond has a clear grasp of first-century culture, both Roman and Jewish, and handles texts highly effectively. As yet, this book is the serious historical piece on Pilate that has no competition over its academic credentials.
Dr. John C. McDowell, Meldrum Lecturer in Systematic Theology
